so, we have huge amount of rain coming our way. you like that segway? thank you, thank you, every once in a while pulling it out of my hat. see, 78 degrees when the phillies game starts tonight. yes, folks are still going to phillies games, and this one may be a challenge. well, you know, the doggy night last night. this just for humans who may get wet. and actually, different opponent tonight. i'll leak that one up. anyway, cold front on the way, sore bye that, yes. we're really focusing on the low pressure system, that will be moving along this front, as it slowly makes it way through the area. and that will cause the heavy downpours. and we've got some going on right now, but, we'll have a break in the action, and maybe another system coming our way in time for the weekends, much weaker system, though, but rain at last. and here it is. as we zoom in, we see few areas where lightning has popped up, northeastern maryland, there kind of challenge driving along that portion of i-95, right after you get out of the state of
delaware, and go into maryland there, but as we look at philadelphia, few areas have dried out. >> around haddonfield, hat haddon heights, heavy rain west vincent township chester county, heavy rain around atlantic city right now, these isolated downpours that we are dealing with all morning long. there is another look at the haddonfield downpour. and it is raining pretty steadily this morning, in cherry hill. so they move around these downpours. bull they'll be with us on and off throughout the day, do you have the opponent for tonight? it is the cubs, chicago cubs, come to town, thank you very much. >> teamwork here at fox 29. glad you're with us, too, so throughout the afternoon, evening, more of those pop up thunderstorms around with isolated heavy down. down tours, could be just as much of a mess as your evening commute as it is for some of thus morning, but you see
things tapering offer by about 9:00 tonight. bee 2:00 a.m., clouds lingering, most of the rain has gone. morning commute on friday will be a lot better, and then, eventually, lower humidity rolling in, in the afternoon. as far as rainfall totals, right along i59 where we may ends up highest rainfall totals. but if you get a loft rain, could you get as much as two, 3 inches, just in one day. muggy in the city, allentown, pottstown, reading, 71 lancaster, over atlantic city, 73, 74 wilmington. very mug any dover this morning, with a 75 degrees temperature, and equivalent dew point, very humid. so we got our official heatwave, three days in a row of 09 degrees or above. no more 90s, in this entire seven day forecast. eighty-two today, 85 tomorrow, with some lingering clouds in the morning, and sunshine and lower humidity in the afternoon. again, little bit, little bit
unsettled for the weekends. got slight chance of rain in the forecast for saturday and sunday, but also, sunshine, especially on saturday, looks like that may be the better weather day of the weekend. but, regardless, temperatures will be much more comfortable than they have been in the past couple of days. so even with the rain bob kelly, the schools that don't have air-conditioning, it will be a bit more comfortable. >> i talk to my daughter last night, i told you she started teaching third grade here in the city. she said they're great in the morning, but whatever you want to teach them, they have to have it done by lunch time. once the heat kicks in at noontime, pretty much forget about it, and there is no recess. they don't want to take the kids out, go it them all hot and sweaty, so rough day hopefully this rain will do some good and knock that humidity down. right now looking live, woodhaven road in northeast philadelphia, the eastbound side, still blocked, the stretch from the boulevard over to knights road. a loft folks using the woodhaven road local, until they pick the cones up there this morning.
eastbound, on the schuylkill expressway, we had early morning accident, here at broad street. let's roll video from the news van. here's what it look like whether we pulled up to the scene here. >> this fellow, obviously, took the curve little too fast, maybe the rain and the wet roads had something to do with it. but we rolled over here, so much for the cadillac this morning, no reports of any serious injuries. look at the wipers still on. so obviously, it was raining, or i would think it would be raining, when that accident occurred. but that's an example. we haven't driven in rainy rush hour since sue mentioned august 20th. it's been quite a while since we put the wipers on. so just be careful. give yourself extra time. already, slow go on the freeway here. just yucky thursday morning, that spray kicking up. hey it is a free car wash though. that's one good way to look at it. south on 95, through all of the construction zones, too, when we don't have the daylight, we have the wet roads, it is tough to see the lane markers, especially, as you roll through some of these new traffic patterns, like here on i-95, 202 northbound,
there is a new traffic pattern, right near that frazier interchange, i95 coming up from delco, we will have road work scheduled later on today. that may be canceled because of the weather. and as we roll on up, there is a left over work crew right near broad street. as you approach the airport. and speaking of the airport, do you have flight schedule or maybe dropping someone off or picking up, probably going to be delays at philadelphia international airport. i'll bet awe jelly donut on that one. do check with your airline before you head down to the airport. and we're starting to see delays here on 295, 42, 55, for the gang leaving south jersey and coming in toward the bridges. chris, lauren, back over to you. >> let's turn don't tapement headlines now. super model, landed her first w magazine, i've been word erring how long this will take. >> take a look at it, dunn one of six cover models in the issue she talks about starting her modeling career at just 14 years old. guess what she said? her mom gave her quote
